McLane, a US-based foodservice distributor and grocery wholesaler, will implement Retalix Traffic Management software at 19 grocery distribution centers across the country.
Retalix has said that its Traffic Management is an inbound freight management system that interfaces with Retalix and other procurement and warehouse management applications. Orders are imported into the system and automatically analyzed for cost-saving and revenue-producing opportunities.
McLane will deploy Retalix Traffic Management with an integrated Retalix web tendering module that enables users to access the company’s community of carriers via the internet to obtain best rates and services for transporting goods into its facilities.
Retalix claims that its Traffic Management software also includes carrier and vendor collaboration tools that save time and help users find new backhauls while improving critical performance metrics. The application also provides real-time insight into data such as PO status, load status, supplier locations and allowances, dock appointments at receiving warehouses and other critical information.
Reuben Halevi, COO of Retalix USA, said: Retalix Traffic Management allows distributors of all sizes to streamline their operations with an easy-to-use application that can be scaled from a single user to enterprise-wide deployment. We expect Retalix Traffic Management to generate a significant ROI for McLane by identifying new income opportunities and providing real-time measurement and control.
